Famitsu unveils The Sky Crawlers

Famitsu unveils The Sky Crawlers

When japanese director Mamoru Oshii and the team responsible of the Ace Combat series join forces in the gaming universe, it spawns The Sky Crawlers for Nintendo Wii - adapted from the anime movie of the same name. Famitsu has the scoop, which can be resumed to Wiimote and Nunchuk aerial piloting. The fidelity should be there, since Mr. Oshii himself sat in front of the T.V. to be sure the artistic direction would be similar to the movie.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @GriftGFX: some smaller games can probably be successful with less players, but if you're aiming for AAA budget, i think it's a harder market than single-player type games. (41 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @GriftGFX: Very true, so long as your staff gets a paycheck and you can keep on working on your projects, it should be seen as successfull imo. (43 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @Tinks: for Overwatch? but that's sorta beta-trial, not that it mattered, but for people who's not that into gaming news and just heard about the game on launch (43 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks also players do go to new games all the time. It's why the business makes so much money and why some games die out quickly (44 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There are different degrees of success too. You don't necessarily need 50 million players or whatever. (44 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth f2p can help lure people to a game, but if you don't get critical mass (which can be a high number) it's not gonna be profitable. (44 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @Melmoth: Well, WoW is quite unique like that though. Has any one game dominated it's space for that long before or after? I doubt it. (45 minutes ago)
